This how-to by a former Marvel Comics cartoonist offers everything a budding artist needs. It focuses in detail on superheroes and their atmospheric world filled with speed and movement. Every aspect of creating cartoons is taught: supplies, techniques for developing mood and endowing characters with personality. See how to draw a variety of faces--female, heroic, cute, gaunt--and give the appearance of age. From the skeleton to the torso, to the arms, hands, and legs, follow every stroke that goes into producing bodies of all shapes and sizes. Finally, there's instruction on sending those figures into running, jumping, punching, kicking action in a fully realized scene.--From publisher description
